Thing I don't understand is how is your tutorial any different or more useful than anything that covers engineering upgrade.
The moment you know what that ability does everything, said here becomes common sense.

I don't see why you need a special tutorial for aghanim's sceptre.

I agree with CM. Try to minimize it's level to 1 and set ability type to none so units with spells can upgrade too!
Do you believe if DotA used custom spells :p

Well..

if you want to increase the effect of your ultimate (custom spell), then check if item is carried by the caster and add the effect with triggers.

if you want this tutorial to apply to custom spells you need to trigger it anyway since damage and such is applied with triggers.

So if I only use the knowledge provided in the tutorial I can't use that method for custom spells.
 
This seems a bit simple of a concept for a tutorial.

I tend to agree. And the images are broken. Is any update incoming?
